about

After seeing the wonderful impact that squats in Europe had on the community, it inspired me to write a song about squats and social centres and why we need them in North America. The ones that do exist are far and few between.

lyrics

She breaks the rusty padlock, making sure not to attract the cops.
We all shall occupy this house, a start of a community squat project. This beautiful abandoned space, ripe from years of neglect.
Time to rebuild it back up, reclaimed by punks, artists and activists.

A new stage, a space for music and poets.
A donated sound system, worm bins for compost and every wall is painted different, an array of beautiful images.

Freedom of expression is truly encouraged here and there's always tons of homebrew and plenty of beer.
Vats of delicious cider are fermenting in the basement.
Bass-bumpin’ dance parties galore and living room circle pits.

We stop it falling through the cracks, we are taking it back.
This new life project overtakes years of neglect.

All are welcome, the door is always open.
Just respect the people who live in this home.
General meetings, to reach mass consensus, everyone is involved in every single decision.

We cook and clean together, no hierarchy to be found here.
Dumpster produce and five-finger discounts acquired with no fear.
So now many years have passed and we paid the utilities.
No longer a squat, but a legal residence for all our communities.
